Words of Wisdom

I came across two quotes this weekend that I really like:

"Countless unseen details are often the only difference between mediocre and magnificent."--Anonymous

"Nothing you write, if you hope to be any good, will ever come out as you first hoped." --Lillian Hellman

Now, if my students would just believe me!

I'm constantly telling them that "the devil is in the details." And, of course, I try to make them understand that a piece of writing will go where it needs to if they let it.

But I think they think I'm making all of this up.

I'm not!
